CNN.com wrote:LONDON, England (Reuters) -- The Spice Girls, who burst on to the music scene with "girl power" and attitude in the 1990s, have reunited for a world tour, their Web site said on Thursday.

"Hey everybody!! We're back!! Can you believe it!!" Ginger, Sporty, Posh, Scary and Baby Spice announced on their Web site.

The Web site said the group had come together for a world tour and provided a link for fans to buy tickets in 11 cities across the world starting on December 7 in Los Angeles.

The five-member band is the latest in a long line of pop acts to bury past differences and reform, hoping for success where many others have failed.

The Spice Girls boasted album sales of 55 million during their brief career, and hits including "Wannabe" and "Say You'll Be There" topped charts across the globe.

But the success was shortlived, with Geri "Ginger" Halliwell leaving in 1998, four years after The Spice Girls was created, and the remaining band members going their separate ways after releasing the album "Forever" in 2000.

All now in their 30s, the singers embarked on solo careers with varying degrees of success, and rumors that they may one day reform have circulated for years.

Victoria "Posh" Beckham has maintained the highest profile since the band split, helped by her superstar soccer-playing husband David and regular appearances at fashion shows and on tabloid front pages.

The couple are moving to the United States where David has signed to play for LA Galaxy, and Victoria aims to carve out a career of her own in fashion and television.

Meanwhile, Melanie "Scary" Brown largely disappeared from the public eye until a high-profile paternity case involving Hollywood star Eddie Murphy.

Earlier this month a DNA test confirmed Murphy as the father of Brown's newborn baby girl after he declined to publicly acknowledge paternity.

You guys should be aware that she doesn't look like that any more. She attended George Michael's birthday bash earlier this week, looking.....kinda dodgy.

Don't get me wrong - she still looks ok, but I dunno if the Union Jack outfit will have quite the same impact these days....

Posh looks like one of those cardboard cutouts you pose beside and then get your picture taken...

But with less emotion...

Considering that Ginger Spice was originally called Sexy Spice, couldn't they have gotten her a dress for the picture that was made after 1926? You know, made something she could look sexy in?

Emma (Baby) doesn't look bad at all. Victoria (Posh) weighs twelve pounds, so Geri (Ginger) still looks pudgy by comparison. Mel B (Scary) has filled out -- especially the implants -- and looks pretty good, I think. Mel C (Sporty) obviously doesn't feel the need to play to her old look and is hot rather than sort of cute. I see Geri is dyeing her hair again to fit the moniker.

As crap as these women were, remember that Chumbawumba could be making a comeback.

Ginger don't need no dress to look sexy in...

It's what's under the dress that counts...

Namely - my upper torso...

hahahah, you guys are funny.

From a woman's perspective, they all look great, considering years have gone by, babies have been born, etc. However, Posh needs to eat a sandwich - she is way too skinny.

In that picture, which one is which? I never cared about these girls before, and I don't now, except everyone in the Zone is talking about them so I feel like I'm missing out.

What on earth do you mean Tape... I was just stating that my fascination with the Spice girls begun at a peak with 'tell me what you want' and steadily fell after the onslaught of 'Spice World', the regrouping of the girls of power only interests me due to the fact that Gingers involved. I can’t imagine that it’ll be any good, even though the tickets will probably be over £100.




shit.... I reveiled my broken spiced heart to the world...


I can't handle another breakup...:cry: I just can't..

Ever have one of those moments where you know the answer to something, but you're too ashamed to admit it?


Just a random thought...






nothing to do with this whatsoever.

*Edit-
I envy Havoc sometimes for apparently not having them.

Thanks, Todd. And I wasn't lying! Really!

I agree about Sporty - hottest. And from the picture, the only one of the bunch it looks like it would be fun to be with, even just to have a beer with.

Posh is a mannequin. Ginger is a porcelain doll from my grandmother's attic. Baby is the Minister of Ugliness in Margaret Thatcher's administration. And Scary looks like she might be fun, too, especially because she has a fetish for unusual shoes.

That's my assessment, anyway.
